Following his inauspicious beginnings playing at small events and private parties around Ireland, Carlow-native John Gibbons initially began to garner attention for his individual and energetic DJ’ing style and crowd-interaction, fast-tracking his way into the public consciousness and quickly gaining a massive following in his home country.
Gibbons began to broadcast on Irish pirate radio, hosting shows on legendary pirate stations Kiss FM and Nova, before making the transition to legal terrestrial radio in 2005. He is now host of Ireland's biggest dance-music radio show 'Club Educate' which broadcasts twice weekly on Dublin-based station Spin 1038. He also presents ‘Club Educate Global’ which is syndicated to radio stations around the world. John’s weekly ‘Club Educate’ podcast is also massively popular, with over 50,000 worldwide subscribers.
Gibbons gradually rose to international prominence as a DJ under the stewardship of Mark Reeder of infamous Berlin label and management company MFS, with word-wide DJ appearances spanning six continents and loyal fan-bases developing in countries such as Ireland, the UK, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Holland, Poland, USA, Russia, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, France, Spain, Germany, China, Australia, Mexico, Luxembourg, Sweden, South Africa, Hungary and many more.
